Retrospective, Sweden / Norway / Denmark / Iceland / Finland 2000, 104 Min., swed. OV, engl. st

Ali El-Rachid escaped the horrors of war in the Mideast 18 years ago. He has since lived in Sweden, where he works as a taxi driver. He has a Swedish wife and two daughters, Sara and Jenny. One of Sara’s classmates is 12-year-old Leo, whose mother is a policewoman. An older student, Danne, bullies Leo mercilessly. In a fit of desperation and seeing no other way out, Leo steals his mother’s service weapon and seeks a final confrontation with Danne. At the same time, Ali is visited by a woman from his homeland. She pressures him to provide support for the planned assassination of the director of a Swedish car manufacturer. Neither Ali nor Leo suspects that they will soon be intimately linked. In this enthralling thriller, political murder and a private thirst for vengeance collide violently.
